Description: Now available once again in this accessible new edition, Beard's classic work on hors d'oeuvre, cocktails, and entertaining takes its place in The James Beard Library of Great American Cooking. The first major cookbook devoted exclusively to cocktail food and drink, James Beard's Hors d'Oeuvre & Canapes combines international flavors and inspirations with classic American cuisine to create an original repertoire of cocktail party fare that ranges from the reliably simple to the exquisitely complex.  

Originally written in 1940 -- when American gastronomy was just beginning to revive and when Beard himself was in the early years of his long, celebrated career -- this landmark book remains a surprisingly rich resource for any party host, lover of food, or anyone seeking a delightful introduction to Beard's unparalleled dedication to the pleasures of the table. 

Brimming with a range of enticing recipes for hot and cold cocktail food, sandwiches, croquettes, and pastries, as well as definitions and histories of such classic hors d'oeuvre as choux, allumettes, barquettes, and bouchees, James Beard's Hors d'Oeuvre & Canapes covers all the cocktail essentials you'll ever need, including advice on concocting the perfect mixed drink, presentation pointers, and even stocking the pantry. Woven into all of this indispensable information are Beard's witty, sophisticated comments, which render all of his writings so uniquely enjoyable. 

The James Beard Library of Great American Cooking is dedicated to preserving Beard's timeless vision of good cooking as an art that is meant to be shared and enjoyed.
